All Creatures Great and Small

Commander / EDH RGW (Naya)

DemonDragonJ


Most of my EDH decks (and most of my decks, overall) have a strong focus on creatures, but this deck is definitely the most creature-centric of them all, as is made clear by its general.

The overall strategy of this deck is fairly straightforward: to generate a great number of tokens and overwhelm its opponents with sheer force of numbers, and this deck contains cards that produce tokens, as well as cards that copy existing tokens.

In addition to containing cards that produce or copy tokens, this deck also has cards that take advantage of creatures entering the battlefield, such as Aura Shards, Terror of the Peaks, and Purphoros, God of the Forge, who, by the way, does not need to be a creature, himself, as his other two abilities are more than sufficient for this deck.

I also have creatures that provide functions that normally would be provided by non-creature cards: Rhys the Redeemed replaces Second Harvest, both Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Bramble Sovereign replace Flameshadow Conjuring, and Pathbreaker Ibex replaces Overrun and Titanic Ultimatum.

This deck obviously contains such staples as Seedborn Muse and Vizier of the Menagerie, which should be in any deck that has such a great focus on creatures, and it also contains Mirari's Wake, Privileged Position, and True Conviction, which I put into any deck that supports their colors.

Since this deck will be generating numerous tokens, I also have Ashnod's Altar and Momentous Fall in it, to allow me to use excess creatures for resources.

There are a number of cards that I dearly wished to put in this deck, but simply was not able to do so; for example, Idol of Oblivion, Godsire, and Desolation Twin all produce massive tokens, but I decided that they are too risky, as they require too much investment and can be disrupted too easily. Camaraderie would have been awesome in this deck, but I simply could not make space for it. Assemble the Legion has excellent synergy with Doubling Season, but several of my other decks already have that card. Dragonlair Spider is nice, but several other decks of mine again have the card, and I also wish for the token generation in this deck to be proactive, rather than reactive. Circle of Dreams Druid and Juniper Order Ranger would have been nice, but I again could not find the room for them, unfortunately.

Creatures are my favorite cards in this game, so I do expect that I shall enjoy using this deck.
